Gearing Up...


for Lyon. Here's the proof; some of the quilts, rolled up and ready to go. All ten are now ready, all I need to do is add the labels, pack them up and send them, which I'll do tomorrow. All ten are made using lutradur; I hope they demonstrate the versatility of my favourite fabric. Or is that Evolon...sigh... I never expected to be seduced by a polyester cloth, much less two of them!

There's always a lot to do before a show; much of it has nothing much to do with the actual pieces you're exhibiting. I'm trying to get things sorted out in my head; what has to be done, when, and where. The packs for the workshops have to be assembled; I may dye and print some cloth to take, too, and some lutradur. I may also translate the lutradur worksheet into French, laminate it and take some to sell. (Yes, I know it's a free worksheet, but laminating etc all costs money. I won't make a profit, but I'd like to spread the word a bit, make it easier for people to use this new and wonderful material. Do I sound like a commercial? Probably. Sorry, just enthusiastic.
Very!
The other picture is of postcards and other small works, waiting to be trimmed and finished, so that they too can travel to Lyon. Some are embellished, some lutradur, some quite heavily stitched. Unlikely as it sounds, I do do more than just use lutradur...sometimes...

Hey Woman
They look fantastic even all rolled up. If anyone could demonstrate the use of lutrador you have done a brilliant job my dear.. Do have a gabulous time i Lyons, I think its a great idea to translate it to french...

work is great and like me you love working with bright colours but would love to ask you were do you get Lutrador from, as reading your blog and others l can't wait to try it and have gone round the web for two hours and still cannot find any. I normaly get most of my fabric ect from the us as its so cheap to the uk so don't mind which country,
Hope you can help

Hi. Where in Lyon? I'd love to see your work. And buy some of your dyed lutradur? Regards, yitap

I got your blog address from an Art Techniques member. I would love to get some of your dyed fabric and the instructions for your lutradur workshop. I am in the US. BTW, more and more artists are using etsy.com because of the high fees at ebay.com. Please email me at crazyartgirl@sbcglobal.net
